AMP Component Customization

Latest Release: October 13, 2021

We've been thrilled by your positive feedback about and increased usage of our JW Player AMP component since we last released major updates to it in player version 8.15.0 in June 2020, when we added support for common video attributes and compatibility with other AMP components.

Developers have historically been limited by what they could customize within the AMP framework since it restricts third-party vendors and scripts to loading inside of iframes. This release helps developers achieve parity with on-page Javascript embeds by adding support for new attributes in AMP that enable extensive customization. Whether you want to append ad tags with page metadata, customize the player controls with CSS, or inject a full setup configuration using JSON, our AMP component now comes with out of the box support to create the player you need. We also added compatibility with the amp-consent component.

To learn more, check out our documentation on amp.dev and see our full release notes below.

OMID Ad Support & Double-tap to Rewind/Fast Forward

Latest Release: October 11, 2021

Pioneered by the Interactive Advertising Bureau, the Open Measurement standard for video in the mobile app is a giant leap for viewability measurement. Open Measurement gives publishers transparency and control to manage the third-party verification scripts rather than running them through the ad creatives themselves, where they cannot be accessed. Our iOS 4.1.0 release brings out of the box OMID support for this industry-wide specification through our VAST ad client.

One more thing. Excited to introduce the most popular gesture control, double-tap to RW/FF, for watching a video to iOS 4.1.0. With this latest iOS SDK, users can easily navigate between frames by simply double tapping either side of screen. This great feature is well branded into an updated slick UI.
